Professor Luigi Colani
"Whenever we talk about bio design we should simply bear in mind just how amazingly superior a spider’s web is to any load-bearing structure man has made – and then derive from this... Read more insight that we should look to the superiority of nature for the solutions. If we want to tackle a new task in the studio, then it’s best to go outside first and look at what millennia-old answers there may already be to the problem." - Luigi Colani
